“The Bachelorette” lovebirds Trista Rehn and Ryan Sutter have tied the knot, but the event might not seem real until it airs on television.

They were married Saturday at the Lodge in Rancho Mirage, a resort near Palm Springs, according to the hotel’s public relations firm, Solters & Digney. The hotel reopened Sunday after being closed to the public for four days to accommodate the large-scale production.

The wedding is scheduled to air Wednesday night on ABC.

“The Bachelorette” was a spin-off of ABC’s popular reality TV show “The Bachelor,” in which Rehn was the runner-up a year ago.

Sutter, a firefighter from Vail, Colo., won the heart of Rehn, a physical therapist and former Miami Heat cheerleader, on the February finale.

ABC picked up the $1 million tab for the wedding. The couple also were paid a fee, said to be another $1 million.

The bride’s gown was designed by Badgley Mischka, and Kenneth Cole made the men’s tuxedos. Some 30,000 roses were brought from Ecuador.
